Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks volume 10!




Winners!
The lucky winners for the free copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks volume 10 are;
From my Blog -Debbie of WoolenSails.
From FatCat's Facebook - Debbie Elgart

Please contact me with your mailing address.


I was both surprised and delighted to be accepted into volume 10! You will find my block "Blessings" on page 24, block # 913. Please be sure to visit the Quiltmaker site for daily chances to win some cool prizes.
Here she is! I wanted a simple applique that could be used for both old and young alike. I can imagine Blessings on baby quilts, quilts for Angel enthusiast, or on a Prayer quilt for a friend coping with cancer.
Blessings was designed using Electric Quilt

I cannot say enough good about the program. It is a delight to use. I had a lot of fun playing around with different fabric choices. Of course my quilt isn't completely finished yet, that won't stop me from sharing a picture though. Please excuse my basting pins!

Mug Rug Exchange

Over at the FatCat Patterns Yahoo Group we are planning a Mug Rug Exchange. You are welcome to join the group and play along. Here is a copy of the exchange guidelines.

FatCat Patterns – Mug Rug Exchange
Mailing due date – February 16, 2015.
Envelopes must be postmarked by this date.
I will swap the mug rugs and mail them back out no later than February 20, 2015.
This is a 1 for 1 exchange.
You may make 1-3 mug rugs.
You will need to include a return envelope of the same size with your return address already written on it, and affix the same amount of postage.
Include a note to be sent along with each mug rug introducing yourself to your exchange friend.

Example – I make 1 mug rug and put it in a 9x5 mailer, the postage is 1.75. I include a separate mailer with my address written in the “To” area, and 1.75 worth of US postage attached. I include a note for my exchange friend.

What is a Mug Rug?
They are small quilted mini placemats just big enough to hold a cup and a cookie on your desk J
9 x 6 inches is about the largest you want one to be. They can be made in any shape, circle, hex, square or rectangle. They can be applique or pieced. They can include embroidery and embellishments. You can pretty much let your imagination run wild!

Here is a nifty site with pictures to inspire you

Mail your envelopes to:
Sindy Rodenmayer
1341 Kynn Drive
Garland Texas 75041

International Friends may play along too! You will need to mail sooner to assure they get here in time. Instead of postage include an extra Mug Rug. I will take care of the return postage.
